Icy roads cause multiple wrecks

BIRMINGHAM, ALA (WBRC) Icy road conditions have caused a number of wrecks in the Birmingham area, including some our reporters passed by while covering the winter weather.

Melanie Posey reports that a state trooper and 18 wheeler collided on I-459 North near the I-65 interchange after both vehicles hit a frozen patch of pavement. The 18 wheeler struck the state trooper's vehicle twice in the accident, but no one was injured.

Another group of wrecks occurred on the icy Galleria Blvd flyover. Eye witnesses told Fox 6 that after an initial crash between two vehicles near the inside wall of the ramp, at least two more cars wrecked as a result. No serious injuries have been reported so far.

We will continue to keep you posted with school, road and business closings due to the weather at MyFoxClosings.com. You can also follow us on Twitter (@MyFoxAl) or check our newsfeed on Facebook.com/myfoxal.
